Abstract

Facial injuries are the most disturbing situations in pediatric patients. The treatment options for the traumatic injuries in pediatric group is controversial as any surgical intervention in young children may disturb the  jaw growth or may even cause damage to the tooth buds in the jaws.

This case report documents successful conservative management of mandibular parasymphysis fracture using Lateral Compression Open Cap Splint (MacLennan) in 3 year old patient.
